Meetup: Authentication as a Microservice 

Kelly Strain

meetup-authentication

Inversoft’s founder and CEO, Brian Pontarelli, will be speaking on Authentication as a Micro-Service at Code Talent.

Authentication is a core piece of many applications. However, it has traditionally been handled in a monolithic manner. Moving to micro-services means that applications now need to decouple authentication, user management and user data.

What we’ll cover at the meetup:

  • Most common pitfalls of authentication and authorization as a microservice
  • How to break apart your architecture and build services for user management features
  • Portable user identity tokens

Date: Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Time: 6:00PM (MST)

Location:
Code Talent
2980 Larimer St.
Denver, CO

This meetup is free to attend and food will be provided by Pivotal. RSVP here.

We hope to see you there! Please pass along the link to any of your colleagues who might be interested in attending the event as well.

 

HackedThat: Minding the backdoor

Hack This

Earlier this summer, we published a comprehensive Guide to User Data Security detailing steps to harden a server and secure applications. We provisioned a couple Linode servers and hardened them to the guides specifications to stand by our claim. We shared the IP addresses and proposed a challenge.

We dared anyone to hack our database. To add incentive, we offered a fully loaded MacBook Pro as a reward.

Get in Our Shirt!

Kelly Strain

Inversoft is giving away free T-shirts. No credit card required. No sales call. No strings attached, really.

user rock shirt

We love developers so much that we want you to have one of our (super soft, kicka$$) shirts when you sign up for Passport. Sign up today and get your free shirt. It’s that easy.

Passport becomes a complete user backend, providing important user management features via a simple REST JSON API.  Why reinvent the wheel by building login, registration, single sign on and more? We build the features. You launch your application. Simple. Every application can benefit from Passport – whether you have 100 users or 100 million users. (Here’s why) Once you see how easy it is to integrate with Passport (use our client libraries/SDKs for fast integrations) using Passport will be a no-brainer.

How to Get the Free Shirt:

  1. Try Passport here.
  2. Click Register Now to create a new account.
  3. On the registration page check the free t-shirt box. Please enter your preferred size and address.
  4. Install (or let us install) Passport and begin adding users.
  5. Check your mail for your free t-shirt!

Shirt SignUp

NO credit card or purchase necessary. We want you to try our product and would greatly appreciate your valuable feedback. Please tweet and spread the word. We know Passport is awesome and think you’ll agree.

Please note: We can only ship shirts to users who live in the United States at the moment. Apologies to our international users.

Free Passport Developers License

We want to remind you that we still offer a free developers license with our on-premise (server) Passport solution.

Try it now. 

What’s Included:

  • All the features of Passport User Database and Management API
  • No time limit
  • Free for non-production use (up to 50 active users)

Like your avatar? You can keep it.

Did you know that you can now bring your avatar with you when you log into Passport?

Gravatar provides users with a globally recognized avatar. If you already have a Gravatar account then you need not do anything else, we’ve taken care of everything. For those without a Gravatar account you’ll still see a randomly generated Gravatar. Everyone wins.
